Listed as one of the prestigious “50 People shaping the future of Design”, (by Fast Company - sept. 2012) Fernando Romero was born in Mexico City, 1971. He graduated from the Universidad Iberoamericana (Mexico city) and went on to work with Rem Koolhaas at OMA (1997-2000) most notably as head project leader the Concert Casa da Musica, Porto, Portugal (1999). Upon returning to mexico he started the LAR (laboratory of architecture) in 2000, which was renamed FREE (Fernando Romero EnterprisE) in 2011. With FREE he gained international acclaim for his Soumaya Museum in Mexico City (see poster attached).

Fernando Romero has been an invited professor at Columbia University, New York, is a member of the AIA (American Institute of Architects), and is also a member of the Mexican Chamber of Architects (CAMSAM). He has published several books that reflect his vision of architecture: ‘Translation’, ‘Hyperborder’ and ‘Simplexity’.

FREE projects are currently spread between its offices in Mexico City and New York, where Romero aims to foster collaborations and partnerships among individuals and organizations, and
materialize ideas into projects that will enhance people’s living conditions and environment.
